1 Hr

It's easy to get everybody to eat their veggies when we serve 'em up in such an appealing combination. Southern cooks have been making a version of Cheesy Eggplant Squash Bake for years, and now we're lucky to be in on their secret.

What You'll Need

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
  • 1 medium-sized eggplant, peeled and cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 4 medium-sized yellow squash, cut into ½-inch chunks
  • 2 medium-sized onions, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1/2 cup instant rice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart casserole dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add eggplant, squash, and onions, and saute 6 to 8 minutes, or until vegetables are slightly tender.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine milk, eggs, 1-1/2 cups cheese, the rice, salt, and pepper; mix well. Add vegetable mixture to egg mixture; mix well.
  4. Pour into prepared casserole dish then sprinkle remaining 1/2 cup cheese over the top and bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until rice is tender.

For those of us with heath issues (like diabetes) could you post the nutritional values? Thanks

Our other site, is specifically for people with diabetes and all of those recipes have nutritional values.

I do not eat white rice, can I add more squash, eggplant or something else to thicken?

Hi! You can use brown rice, or you can add an extra egg and hold off on the rice altogether.

Should I cook the rice before adding to the other ingredients?

Hello! No, you should not cook the rice before adding it to the casserole. Enjoy!
